Festival in Central Ohio: "Shakespearean insulters like Branstool mocked the few hundred students, parents and siblings who attended the school's third annual Shakespeare Festival Thursday night, which was organized by senior English teacher Dana Decker. Other students performed William Shakespeare's plays, sang Elizabethan songs, served as life-sized chess pieces in a real game, prepared food from the era and stood in the stocks as festival-goers tossed wet balls at their faces. A petting zoo with a small goat, sheep and pig was set up just outside the school cafeteria."

The William Shakespeare Weblog is looking for contributions. If you want to comment or follow-up on something which has been mentioned or you have something which you think might of interest to readers please get in touch. We would particularly like to hear from anyone connected with a production of one of Will's plays for a prospective diary feature. Above all else Shakespeare's words are as relevant now as then and its important for this weblog to reflect that.
